Emirates reportedly takes delivery of previously refused A380


Emirates took delivery of an Airbus SE A380 superjumbo that had previously been refused, marking a step forward for the embattled program.



The A380, which had been fully kitted out and ready for delivery last month, was delivered in mid-November, a spokesman for Airbus said in a statement.

Airbus said in an October 31 earnings update that it was “actively working to resolve certain commercial challenges” on the supply of the aircraft to a customer.

Emirates and engine-supplier Rolls-Royce Holdings Plc have been locked in negotiations over terms for the supply of turbines for the double-decker.

The Gulf carrier in January placed a follow-on order for the plane that had been punted as a life-saving deal that would allow production of the aircraft to continue until 2029.



Spokespeople for Emirates and Rolls-Royce weren’t immediately available to comment when contacted by Bloomberg.
